In spite of important pervasive trends, the communication of science in organizational contexts has not received much scholarly attention yet. Neither have many scholars from the field of communication management and strategic communication taken up the issue of science (cf. Fähnrich 2018b) nor has the growing field of science communication paid much attention to the role of organizations yet (cf. Horst 2013).
This special issue of the Journal of Communication Management on “Communicating Science in Organizational Contexts” will contribute to closing this gap. It invites contributions by June 1 from scholars of communication management, strategic communication, organizational communication and organizational sociology, as well as from science communication, science and technology studies, the sociology of science and other related fields and disciplines.
